The Security Council today unanimously adopted a resolution renewing its authorization of the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) by six months until December in support of the Government’s preparation for phase two and the Mission’s troop drawdown.

By resolution 2687 (2023) (to be issued as document S/RES/2687(2023)), the Council, among other things, called on the Government of Somalia to continue working with the African Union, United Nations, European Union and bilateral partners to expedite the development of its sovereign capabilities necessary to gradually take over security responsibilities from ATMIS, and to enable greater Somali ownership and responsibility in preparation for the exit of ATMIS and scaling-back of the United Nations Support Office in Somalia (UNSOS).

By other terms, the Council requested the Government of Somalia and the African Union to conduct a joint technical assessment by 31 August to evaluate phase one drawdown, a further update by 15 September on their preparations for phase two drawdown and for the Government of Somalia to provide an update to the Council by 30 November on progress in implementing its revised national security architecture, force generation and integration.
